I'm pretty easily distracted, actually

Screaming voices, a lot of excitement, a clumsy neighbor, and somehow, Elizabeth found herself tainted with ink. Brown eyes blinked slowly, processing what had just happened. It was all so quick, and she had been surprisingly wrapped up in a game about which she actually cared very little. But there was ink on her now, the blotch growing, expanding, consuming more fabric.

The responsible party did not apologize, but the look of absolute horror on her face informed Elizabeth in a glance that nothing had been under malicious intentions. In fact, she was fairly sure she knew the girl. She was obviously considerably older than her, and a Cetus, if memory served. Actually, was this not the girl that hung around her cousin Amelia?

Erin? Well, whatever her name was--could have been feeling, although the giant blotch was obviously still going to be plainly visible. “It does not seem like a very eventful game so far. Might not be much of a final no matter which side wins today, huh?”
